Yep. I have six of them. If they ever give, I'll have bigger problems than a five-inch hole in the deck.

My boat is about as far from a Hunter 45 as you can get, and I suppose we've "sacrificed" good looks, style, some speed (not as much as you'd think, however) and some amenities to go to sea in her. But when I hear stories like this, I think that the sacrifice is on the other human, so to speak.
